Breakfast and lunch are a hit here. Dinner is ok. Enjoy your meals on the patio, by the pool or in the restaurant. They have a large variety of options.

The Royal Grille located inside the Port Royal Hotel is open to the public, in season for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The Eggs Benedict (my favorite) are scrumptious. Have a Chicken Phillies, Crab Cake, or a Cobb Salad for lunch. Dinner when available order the Prime Rib, fantastic! It's a BYOB! Say hello to Megan who will greet you, Cathy,... More

The look of the hotel (nor the name) doesn't match the quality of food being served in the restaurant. You would think it would be good. I think it's just okay. The tomatoes in the salad were over ripe. The filet mignon was tough. Not very good quality meat. Ok so every place has a bad day.....nope day 2. Still... More

Been eating here for years and the food was always very good. This year it is better than ever. So what could be so good about breakfast food in one place vs another ? Two things: execution and food quality. The Royal Grille gets an A plus on both counts. Whatever you are doing in your kitchen please keep it... More

I have lived in Wildwood since 1996, and never visited the Royal Grille. Went with some family, and had reservations for Prime Rib night. Excellent service, very good food, and the best ocean views in Wildwood Crest. Not that busy for dinner, which may make it a great 'go-to' place at the last minute.

Hands down the best food in Wildwood Crest ! While bigger restaurants are serving frozen patties , this is the real deal . Fresh and a gourmet delight . The entire family loved their meals and service was fast and courteous . Will be back and not go anywhere else . Should be number 1 !

Breakfast here several days. Food good and reasonably priced. Also grabbed lunch to go(back to beach). Only complaint is a couple not too friendly servers.

Food is ok at best, but my kids love the view, and since we usually stay in the hotel itself it's very convenient. The woman who runs the place is rude and snotty beyond belief. She needs some serious customer service and business training. Eat at Aloisi's instead where you are treated with respect and the food is 10x better!... More
